The Oberlin Scholars' Bowl Team won the Northwest Kansas League competition, which was held in Quinter on January 7.

The tournament was a round robin with seven rounds. The teams participating were Oberlin, Greeley County, Sharon Springs, Quinter, Dighton, Atwood, Hoxie, and St. Francis.

The DCHS team consisted of seniors Kaden O’Hare, Isabel Grafel, Faith Meitl, and Kaylen Ashley, and junior Gabe Peter. They were undefeated with a 7-0 record; the second- and third-place teams both had records of 4-3.

Oberlin’s first round was against Dighton, and they won 80-30. In the second round, they defeated St. Francis (50-30), and in round 3, Atwood (80-10).  Next Oberlin faced Greeley County (60-15), and Sharon Springs (50-40).  The final two rounds were against Hoxie (70-50), and Quinter (50-30).

"I  am so proud of this team," said coach Wendy Scot.  "They have so much fun competing and are a blast to watch. At the league competition, they worked so well together."

Isabel was the leading scorer with 140 points; Kaylen was second with 120, followed by Kaden with 80. Faith was next with 50, and Gabe had 30.

"I am really proud of how we competed," said Isabel, "and I'm excited to see how we do at Regionals."

Regionals are January 31 in Ness City.  The top three teams will qualify for State, which is February 9 in Inman. 

Three of the seniors on this year's team (Kaylen, Isabel, and Faith) helped Oberlin to a first-place finish at league their sophomore year and a third-place finish last year along with Kaden, Alex Hayward, and Emily Howland, who graduated last May.  Oberlin went 5-2 last year and was part of a three-way tie for first.  Because of tie breaker procedures, Oberlin ended up with third.

Their sophomore year, Kaylen, Isabel, Faith, Emily, Luke Koerperich and Adrian Chambers, not only won league, but they also qualified for state. 

When they were freshmen (in 2016), they didn't get a chance to play on varsity.  That's the year Oberlin won the State Scholars' Bowl with Kelly Brown, Kade Grafel, Jonathon Howland, Alexandra Waterman, Adrian Chambers, and Luke Koerperich.  Oberlin won the league tournament that year also and placed second at regionals. 2016 was Mrs. Scott's first year of coaching.
